Breakfast with a Diamond Python
I like living in the mountains because you just never know who might drop in for a morning cup of coffee. Over the years we have had a wide variety of animals eg Wallabies, snakes, lizards and birds. We have had a resident Diamond Python for over two years. "Monty" is a part of the family. She lives in the roof of our home and is often found in the gardens, in the hedges or on the back deck.(see photos)
We never seem to have a mouse,rat or possum, problem here. Not only that, but she provides a great education for my children, who have grown to respect the bush, the insects and wildlife.
So, a cup of coffee on the deck, as the sun rises, with Monty.....
